Hello “Cigar Community” and “Cigar Family!” Thank you for joining us and reading another great article here at Red Lips and Cigar Sticks™ we are happy to have you as one of our new, and/or faithful readers!
Today’s dapper gentleman (Dapper Gent) of the week is Henry Stokes out of Atlanta, GA.
Henry has been an avid cigar smoker for 20 years. He was first introduced to cigars by his father, who gave him his first cigar for his 16th birthday, which was a Montecristo No 2 and a bottle of Moet, what a 16th Birthday!!!!!!!!!! This truly shines a light on the beauty of a particular era that many of us grew up in, which consisted of a level of freedom and an unlimited amount of no restrictions, to do as you please, with your children, if it was disciplining or partaking in things, it was your own choice, no judgment or enforcement from others or authorities, unlike today, this would be considered taboo and despicable.
However, the cool thing behind this story is that it shows the bond and relationship that Henry and his father had. It displays the admiration his father had for his son and vice versa. These items were of sentimental value to his father and for him, he felt that his son crossed into manhood, and for that, he deserved a piece of indulgence at its finest!
And, as a result, this started Henry’s cigar journey, which has totally turned into a lifestyle for him that consists of having a cigar lounge, Trilogy. This cigar lounge is a place where strangers become friends. They pride themselves on providing a welcoming experience in a laid-back environment. The most interesting fact about this lounge is that they produce all their own cigars in the Dominican Republic that are available to you in the lounge, making this a true and unique cigar experience that you cannot get anywhere else.
This lounge is intimate, it has a posh-contemporary vibe that serves up a premium selection of spirits and chef-crafted eats. This is definitely a cigar lounge that you want to mark on your bucket list of lounges to visit and see! Trilogy does not have a dress code, but to keep it in the fashion of our “Dapper Gent,” you should always “dress to impress.”
Henry is our “Dapper Gent” of the Week for his admiration and ability to become a business owner, as well as channeling pieces of his youth, which was instilled in him by his father, and turning it into a successful business of three years. Also, his elaborate attention to detail as it comes to being a dapper gentleman, dapper because being a well-dressed man cannot just be appearing, as one, but paying attention to the details, to stand-out and be different!
